The Space Coast Transportation Planning Organization (SCTPO) is now accepting transportation project funding applications for the 2019 Priority Project Process. Applications will be used by the SCTPO and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to qualify and prioritize proposed projects for state and federal funding.
The SCTPO has four categories of Priority Projects:
- Strategic Intermodal System (SIS) Roadway, Bridge and Rail Projects
- Regionally Significant Non-SIS Roadway Projects
- Transportation System Management and Operations (TSM&O)- Traffic Operations and Safety Projects
- Regional Trails (SUNTRAILS) and other Bicycle/Pedestrian focused projects
Applications are due on Tuesday, April 16, 2019, by 2:00 p.m.
The application must be submitted for all new projects. You do not have to submit an application for projects already on the TPO priority list.
Supporting documentation must be provided as part of the application to ensure that projects are consistent with Local Government Comprehensive Plans and the SCTPO’s Long Range Transportation Plan.
Projects should be adopted/endorsed by your Council, Commission or Board prior to the TPO adoption on July 11, 2019.
If you would like a meeting with SCTPO staff to discuss potential projects or have any questions, please call the office at 321-690-6890.
Potential projects are reviewed by the SCTPO’s Transportation Growth Management Subcommittee, Technical and Citizen’s Advisory Committees, Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Trails Advisory Committee, and citizens. A draft list is submitted to the TPO Board for consideration. Once adopted, the list is forwarded to the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) for funding consideration.
Typical projects take ten or more years to complete. Construction begins only after thorough review of environmental impacts and alternatives.
